If I could give Cakes ROCK 10+ stars I would! Our entire experience has been unbelievable, from the customer service, cake design, cake flavors, and the follow up with the vendor. Customer Service: We loved Christy when we met her at the tasting. She is sweet, spunky, and... Read More funny and SO creative. We saw some of the cakes she was working on, and we were blown away by her artistic abilities. She made the few cakes and icings that we asked for, and then made a few others that she thought we make like as well. She went above and beyond to make sure we could taste anything we wanted. Christy was receptive to what we wanted but also chimed in with her ideas on what would look good, taste good (but without being pushy!) I sent DOZENS of emails to Christy with last minute updates, questions, concerns. She always responded in a timely manner, answered every question, acknowledged the changes, addressed my concerns and put my mind at ease each time. We trusted her opinion, and I am so happy that we did. The cakes turned out more beautiful and delicious than we pictured. Groom’s Cake: Cakes ROCK made both the groom’s cake and bride’s cake. The groom’s cake was sculpted to look like the University of Georgia English Bulldog mascot, and it was the most realistic bulldog cake I have ever seen. The amount of detail was unreal. it was incredible. The body of the bulldog was red velvet cake with cream cheese filling. The bulldog was laying on a vegan chocolate sheet cake with peanut butter cream filling (with crushed up Reese’s cups). The bulldog cake was a HUGE hit at the wedding. After the wedding, the pictures of the bulldog cake were shared on the internet more than 2,000 times in a single day! Bride’s Cake: The bride’s cake was more of the traditional white, round, four-tiered cake. Let me just say that each of Christy’s tiers are OVER 5” tall! She had stacked, overlapping ruffles on the bottom tier that faded from tiffany blue (that she matched perfectly to a fabric swatch I sent her) to white and the 3rd tier had the same ruffles. The 2nd (from the bottom) tier and the top tier had a criss-crossed ruffle design. The four tiers each had a different cake and filling: Vegan Chocolate Cake with Peanut Butter Filling, Red Velvet Cake with Cream Cheese Filling, a Carrot Cake with White Chocolate Filling, and a White Velvet Cake with Amaretto Buttercream filling. All of the cakes flavors are extremely moist and packed with flavor. The fillings were so rich and sweet. I could go on and on about how amazing the cakes are, but in all honesty, you just need to book a tasting. They are delicious. The Follow Up: 5+ Stars! Most would think that their vendor would fall of the face of the earth after their job was done. This was not the case with Cakes Rock. She checked in with us to make sure we were happy with everything, and I really appreciated that. On top of that she did something COMPLETELY unexpected. My fiancé and I live up in GA pretty close to where she has family (about 1 1/2 hours away). When she came up to visit her family for the holiday, she brought us a Chocolate Cake with Peanut Butter Buttercream Filling, (the same cake that was in our wedding cake.) I could not believe how considerate she was for this. At the end of the day, I would recommend Christy and Cakes Rock!!! to anyone looking for a delicious and beautiful cake for their wedding day, child’s party, anniversary, anything. I promise, you won’t be disappointed.

Cakes ROCK! Was Truly Amazing

Reviewed on 5/27/2015 Katie H

Cakes Rock! and namely Christy was just absolutely fantastic to work with. I got her contact from a very trusted vendor as I was hosting my wedding in an unfamiliar area (had a venue change about 6 months before the wedding) and Christy from Cakes Rock! did not disappoint. Her... Read More cake was truly a one of a kind work of art. Due to distance we didn't meet in person until the day of the wedding, but working with her over the phone and email was so easy. Even being a busy and forgetful Bride, Christy was always wonderful to talk to, eased my concerns and asked for information without being cranky if I couldn't respond right away. I would 1000% use her again. I sent her pics of my dress, the design of my overcoat (we had a steampunk theme) and of my top hat a friend had made. She was able to incorporate those elements into the cake in such a unique and amazing way! It was MY top hat and a corset, all done in my wedding colors, she even incorporated the butterflies and blue of my overcoat! The cake was simply spectacular. I had guests taking pictures of it until right before we cut the cake (which I almost hated to do because it was so beautiful). Then we had a bite and it TASTED AS GOOD AS IT LOOKED! My main priority was taste, I wanted something pretty but not if it tasted like cardboard like I'd had at other weddings. We had almost no cake leftover. We had three tiers- the bottom was chocolate cake with cookie dough filling (not actually but it certainly tasted like it); the middle was lemon (perfect flavor not too tart or sweet); the top layer was chocolate with peanut butter filling. The absolute only thing I would ever have changed was to have the bottom/biggest layer be lemon because everyone loved it the most- we had NO leftovers of the layer (and barely any leftovers of the other layers). Even the leftovers were awesome. We cut the cake into a few slices and froze the slices. My new husband and I shared a slice of the chocolate cake with cookie dough about a month after the wedding and it tasted better than many a cake you get right from the store. I even purchased a smaller groom's cake from Christy, with my favorite picture of my new husband on it. He loved it! It was chocolate with chocolate frosting, it was like eating a chocolate cloud (no leftovers of that one). It was so rich and just mouthwatering. I know many folks use words like mouthwatering and spectacular, but I've never meant them more than in this case. I would recommend Cakes Rock! to anyone I know who is getting married (in fact I actually asked Christy to leave several of her cards with me in case anyone asked and I ran out by the end of the night so many folks had wanted on). From the first phone call to her delivering the cake to us eating the cake, was just start to finish a wonderful experience. If you want a truly one of a kind cake that will exceed your expectations, call Cakes Rock. Almost forgot, Christy also worked within my budget and helped guide me in making choices that would not only be spectacular, but wouldn't break my bank account. She was upfront and honest the whole time regarding money, "if you want this, maybe you do this instead of this" kind of thing. I always felt she guided me help her achieve what I wanted and could afford rather than shooting me down based on budget. I don't think I ever heard her say that something wouldn't work without offering insight into an alternative solution instead. Use Christy and your cake will ROCK!

Where to begin. Let me just say Christy is amazing! From the moment we talked on the phone to schedule our tasting to the day of the wedding she was great. We had previously spoken to other wedding cake bakeries before we met Christy and as soon as we got to her place we knew... Read More she was it. Our tasting was so personal, it was about 1-1:30 hours long unlike other places where it was at most 20 min long. She asked us tons of questions about our theme and what we were loooking for in our cake. But as soon as we saw her previous geode cake we just knew that was it. As we discussed the geode cake she began to actually sketch out what it would look like. We kept in contact all through out the wedding planning. I knew the cake was something I did not have to worry, she made us feel so reassured that our cake would turn out great. And so it did. Everyone just fell In love with out cake, so much so that it was published in the American Cake DecoratIng Magazine. We will never get over how amazing it was!
